I'm often sarcastic but always well intentioned. I am a genuine, analytical, and generally down-to-earth guy.
I like to hike, snowboard, rock climb, and do other outdoorsy things. I spend a lot of time staring at computer screens and sometimes I forget to go outside and run around, so I'm always looking for new activities. I'm trying to climb every 4000+ ft mountain in New Hampshire (there are 48 of them, as it turns out).
Travelling is fun, and always yields a new perspective on the world. I've got three continents down so far, working on the fourth.
Sometimes I fly airplanes.
I find the study of our physical world fascinating. I like to know how things work. I'm sufficiently adept at computering, and know way too much about Turing machines.
